Step 3: Get In Touch!

Once you’ve chosen a theme and a portrait type let me know about your idea and I’ll make it happen! Contact me via email:

Please include in your request photos of the people that are to be drawn (the larger the variety of pics the better) and any specific reference for your chosen theme, and I can get started!
I can accept online payments via Paypal to the email address stated above.


Still undecided? Let's have a look at a few examples of what the final portraits look like!

Single Head & Shoulders: "En garde!" Alex chose to be drawn as a Musketeer!

Single Head and Shoulders: SPBM's Lovely Lee donned in WWII bomber gear, in the style of Oddball from Kelly's Heroes!

Single Head & Shoulders: The Good, The Bad and... Josh!? Western Cowboy theme drawn in the style of Clint Eastwood.

Single Full Body: My petrol head Dad went for the sporting theme with his motorbike and Ford Focus team overalls.

Single Full Body: Taking a more theatrical turn now with Ian as Shakespeare's Macbeth!

Double Full Body: Gem and I fly high! My sister and I opted for a more fantasy portrait, she is sporting Cardinal wings and I have those of a Kestrel! This is also a nice example of the versatility of these commissions!

So there you have it, your imagination really is the limit with these portraits! So if you fancy one then please get in touch!
